What Went Wrong with my Septoplasty 1 Year Ago? Experiencing Facial Pain, Congestion and Odor.

I have been experiencing nothing but constant facial pain in my cheeks,congestion(left nostril always blocked), sneezing, and the worse of all-a horrible odor coming from my nose since my septoplasty over a year ago. I never experienced these symptoms before, only after the surgery. What could have gone wrong?

Hi,

Many things could be wrong. You could have a persistant deviated septum or a septal perforation. See an ENT/Facial Plastic Surgeon to look into your nose.

Best,

Dr.S.
